Protect Water: Boycott Nestlé

The Council of Canadians is currently running a campaign to protect underground aquifers from excessive exploitation by large multinational companies. They are drawing attention to Nestlé’s for profit water pumping and bottling operations in Southern Ontario and British Columbia. This, despite the outcries from local residents who believe that the water under their ground should first be used for local purposes, not bottled and sent away. Visit their website and show your support by clicking on the link:

TELL ONTARIO NOT TO SELL OFF OUR WATER TO NESTLÉ! – Environmental Defence is also mounting an anti-water bottling campaign. You can take action by filling out and submitting their form here.

The Ontario government has announced a proposal to extend the current moratorium on new and expanded bottled water permits to October 1, 2020, which, as explained by the Canadian Environmental Law Association, was put in place in 2016 and first extended in 2018.

You can make your voice heard by submitting your comments on the moratorium before December 18, 2019 on the Ontario Government website.
